"I had told even in 2010 about this incident but nobody responded. I'm not in FILA (world body for wrestling) or any other federation, so can't say if the Russian's medal should be taken away," Sushil said.
     
Sushil was referring to his 66 kg freestyle bout against Russian Alan Gogayev in the World Championships, which he had won 3-1.
     
The London Games silver-medalist had claimed that he was offered around Rs 3 crore to lose the title clash.
     
"I was approached through a coach to 'throw' the final bout. I was offered about 3 crore...wrestling is huge in Russia, and they didn't expect an Indian to enter the final," he said.
